CRANBERRY JUICE AND GOAT’S MILK FOR STOMACH ULCERS

S from Summerton, SC, United States writes: “Ulcers are caused by a bacteria and usually doctors will give you medications that will only lower the acid level in your stomach for a little while causing you temporary relief, but it’s not going to get rid of the bacteria itself which is why most people have recurring flare ups.

My ulcer came from the fact that I got a sty on my eye, then took an antibiotic to clear it up. After taking the antibiotic I started getting horrible stomach cramps that were so bad the only relief I got after eating was taking a Lortab (substitute for Vicodin; I had a couple of pills left over after a previous surgery). When those pills were down to just one, I went back to the doctor and was prescribed Dicyclomine for the pain and Ranitidine (Zantac) was supposed to rid me of the “upset” in about 2 weeks. Not even a week later I detected blood in my stool, but decided not to go back to the doctor to waste anymore of my money. […]

 

A few years ago I heard about a man who accidentally drank acid when he was a boy and in order to repair the lining in his stomach he was made to drink goat’s milk for a year. He’s in his 70s or 80s now, so I figured if it worked for him it should work for me as well; after all, if there’s an ulcer there’s a hole in your stomach. I’d heard of it working for other people as well so I decided to try it. As far as getting rid of the bacteria I decided to use cranberry juice. Studies showed that drinking cranberry juice flushes the bacteria from your digestive system.

 

There you have it: Cranberry juice and goat’s milk. And after just 2 days no pain at all. Don’t get me wrong, the goat’s milk doesn’t taste good at all, but I’ve heard of people adding a little sugar and vanilla (get the non alcoholic one since you are treating an ulcer) to help with the taste. I can’t vouch for these other home remedies on here, but I know this one that I’m doing doesn’t have a list of ingredients and it’s a tried and true method that I’ll take over a doctor’s visit any day.”
